I've just been told that all marriage licenses in my grandfather's native
village were destroyed, so I can't get my great-grandmother's maiden name
from the Ukranian archives. Can someone tell me, would my immigrant
grandfather have listed his mom's maiden name on his application for
Social Security, his request for U.S. citizenship, or any other American
document that might be available to me?
Social Security applications always include mother's maiden name.
U.S. Naturalization records do not include parents' names.
Marriage records in most U.S. states ask for mother's maiden name.
Death records in most U.S. states ask for mother's maiden name,
but this is often not filled in.

You should also try obtaining the same documents for his siblings.
